in the director's chair

apparantely, this is what i look like when i am deep in thought.



someone took this photo of me at rehearsal the other night. and i'm looking at it, thinking, that's not me. that does not look like me.

and then i realized, that, almost a year after launching spt, i have gotten accustomed to seeing my image in my "natural spt state." you know, from an arm's length away. with just the right tilt of the head as to avoid unnecessary chins and all that.

same person. different photographer.
interesting...

I also feel like I look different in every picture I see so I can totally relate. You look like the Lelly I know in this photo :)

can't believe it's almost been 1 year.

It's funny how that happens! I think you do look like you in that picture -- I like the concentration! It's crazy how taking a flattering SPT has become a science. :)

I think it is so great you are involved with such a wonderful project. I loved drama all through H.S. and my kids have been in loads of musicals. I wish I could see your play~ break a leg!

P.S. It was an absolute thrill to see my name on your blog list!!!

Amy said...

That IS interesting. Hm.. I love the picture...your skin is quite lovely & your head is quite busy - it all shows!

Mandy said...

thanks for your nice and funny comments on my blog. I love that you said your baby had a pillow. I think in dealing with things like this, a sense of humor is a must. thanks again!

I hadn't thought about it, but I really do have many more self portraits than pictures taken by other photographers. It's feeding my control issues.
I think this is a cute picture of you with the pigtails.

Isnt' it strange when we don't recognize a picture of ourselves?

Good luck on the play, and with your actor in a cast!

Lelly, as you age, you will recognize yourself less and less. I love the picture.
